I have a Musician's Friend Truss system. Now this is probably the least expensive truss system that was available at the time, but tt works fine and, although I've had to make a few repairs, I have it working as steadily as possible. The one problem that I've had is that the tubes on the truss are 1 3/8" and I can't find an O-Clamp that will fit that.

I had bought a couple lights from someone that had these on them already and liked the way that they worked. So my new objective was to match those so everything would be consistent. These Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamps looked like a match, so I ordered a bunch. And a perfect match they are!

I have mounted all of my fixtures with these, including my old-school Double Derby and Line Dancer lights; I don't think that there is anything that they can't handle. The only fixtures that I'm using more than one on are my Haze Machine (just for safety sake and stability) and my 4-head laser unit (again, just for stability because it is a light-weight unit but fairly wide).

I am extremely happy with these and plan to order some more.

This thing does the job and is affordable. Good qualities is that the metal is steel and will not very likely fracture. Negative qualities are that the stamped steel C is not thick enough where the threads are, so there is some wobble in the screw, which can cause some wobble on a round pole when clamped tight. The screw end is also not formed well enough to prevent scratches in the paint pole, so if it is black-painted steel it will quickly become chewed up looking after a few on/remove cycles.
I've also had trouble with the proximity of the screw clamp and the fixture's screw, on some fixtures they are too close for one to be able to tighten the screws easily without tools.
These are OK, but you must be sure to get them real, real tight or some shaking could losen the clamp. They do tend to twist a bit around a round pole, so if you need a tight, absolute fixed position, I suggest getting the wrap-around round clamps that seem to grip better and not twist, they also don't destroy black paint finish on the poles.

I used these to mount PAR20 can lights as part of themed decor. They were the perfect thing when the other clamps were only available for a pipe sizes outside what I was clamping to.

Comments about Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamp:

We thought we could save some money on cheap clamps to hang dmx dimmer packs. Clamps come with a small metric light mount bolt and a big plastic truss mount bolt. Big bolt wouldn't tighten because plastic handle was up against equipment. Metric replacement bolts were not available from our local hardware store. We drilled out the light mount holes to 25/64". Installed 3/8" x 4" bolts. Had to tap these in with a hammer. We couldn't get fully threaded bolts at our local hardware, so we had to cut tubing for the bolts so they would tighten. All said...we spent more modifying the clamps than we spent on them originally. Savings? Zero!

    Comments about Chauvet CH03 Standard C-Clamp:

    Great for a lightweight clamp, yes it will scratch any surface you clamp it to. If you want a scratch free clamp then spend the extra money and get one. For hanging light weight fixtures it is perfect. I think it is priced just right for what you get. Easy way to fix the loose screw issue is to back it up on the inside with a nut, addtional cost .03, shouldn't have to do that but then its not a 15-25.00 clamp is it.

            I am a film and Theater Director, not a music person. This product is great for the price.

            Thumb screw is a real plus for quick set up with light weight cans.
